Hello all,
a couple of days ago i have finished a transistion from exchnage 2003 to exchnage 2007 SP1 on an HP DL360 G5 server with 2 quad core xeon processor and 12 GB of ram with Raid 5
i have around 60 mailboxes on this exchange server.

i have noticed in the performance tab in the task manager that my server is using 10.8GB out of 12GB sometimes even more.Also i noticed that in task manager under the tab processes i have a service called store.exe that using 9GB of memory

when i run the exchange performance troubleshooter i would get the following:

any idea what this can be ora how i can solve it?

thank you

It is quiet normal that store.exe would use memory and if some application would require it would release for it.

Now as we have 60 user are their outlook configured in Online mode if so that is incorrect as it would increase a lot of load on the server.

The more that i would be concerned is if some users complain and if the CPU usage goes up and not memory as store.exe in Exchange 2007 is designed in that way.

Yes that was Exchange 2003 32-bit with limitations and this is
Exchange 2007 64-bit with no Physical RAM limitations.
As i have worked with PSS i dont think you should be worried.

""so your telling me that is is not a big of en issue?"""

This is by design and store will give the memory back if any other service/app needs it. Nothing to worry about. Install the latest update rollup 8 though.
